. his government has been blamed for a lot. the country has become a bit of a tax haven for rich russians. some banks, we are told now, will reopen on tuesday, but restrictions will be in place. there was real fear there will be a run on those banks when they do reopen and in fact, we have just learned that the two biggest and most troubled banks will not reopen tomorrow. we're told now they won't open again until thursday. what is the u.s. take away from all this, megyn? >> europe, the ally, and trading partner for the united states, certainly, is intact. that's a good thing. but according to experts, the credibility of the euro shall the credibility of the european union has been damaged by all of this back and forth for the past couple of days. as you noted, a very dangerous precedent has been set, that is dipping into private bank accounts to pay for the government, and maybe that's why we see the markets both here and in the states go down today. >> megyn: greg palkot, thank you. it's not often that the economy in cyprus makes global headlines, but experts say the latest and
. the sequencing done right on this cut spending cuts and tax reform. things sound great and they're moving along now. but joe, as we talked about earlier, you're going to have reticent democrats. and even key congressional races who are going to slow down a bit and saying, look, i want immigration and guns dealt with, what are we doing about the economy and the budget, the debt, and tax reform? >> and this is, richard haas, you can only push people so far, i mean, not the republicans' best friend. this weekend said democrats you're about to lose me. i pay 40% federal, 15%. well, i hear we have it cued up. let's go. this is bill maher this weekend. >> -- actually do pay the freight in this country. i just saw the statistics, something like 70%. and here in california, i'm just going to say, liberals, you could actually lose me. it's outrageous what we're paying. over -- i'm willing to pay my share, but yeah, it's ridiculous. >> and not only that -- >> wow. >> people like bill maher pay 55% in california, people in new york pay over 50%. in new jersey, why is a republican sitting at 70% plus appro

and the rest of it. >> paul: you don't object to the government taxing, so-called syntaxiin taxing, say he we want to defer the use of that? >> this is a real problem, it's a vision of government which is supposed to lead citizens to virtue. that's very different. that's not the constitutional vision. we have a free society in which people make choices and then accept the consequenceses of those choices. i would add, by the way, i can think of few measures designed to make cigarettes popular again among young people than to put them behind counters and make them seem elicit and cooler than they ought to be. >> this isn't just mike bloomberg's obsession. it's huge in public policy, how would you want to look at behavior of people, seat belt laws and singapore has a mandatory savings program, we do not. another big example, the board that barack obama set up in the middle of obamacare, the 15 people who in medicare will decide which medical practices work and which ones don't and the whole medical community will be asked to comply with this. the bigger question and that board is is an example,
is the answer to everything. more tax, more spending. ours is, let's save medicare, let's save social security, let's downsize the federal government to a size that is manageable and affordable. >> shannon: there are all kinds of fiscal issues with the budget, with sequester and the debt ceiling, not far off. have you offered a number of ways that you think the federal government could be cutting back. your office is good at looking at budgets and plans. you have note aid number of things that could have been done n. liu of closing the white house to public visitors, but did you have bipartisan crossover. >> i had bipartisan crossover because they're getting ready to run for election. there is a game play in the senate. this administration wants to show the american public that we can't cut $44 billion between now and september 30 without them experiencing massive pain. they have every intention to make it hurt to get the point that we need to spends every penny we are spending. which is absolutely ludicrous. it's a shame they are doing that because a lot of things -- we are going to have air
earned money when the other side is offering even more spending increases and tax increases. more borrowing. we are worlds apart. >> democratic proposals do not balance the budget. the fbi is investigating how on earth a man was able to pose as a pilot and gain access airways flight in philadelphia. police say the man had on an air france uniform and also an i.d. then he ended up in the jump seat right behind the airlines captain. he was caught when he failed to show his real credentials. the airline says that no passengers were ever in danger. >> that was a bizarre story. >> um-huh. >> the lie breafer congress has added 25 new songs, including this 1960's hit. ♪ come on, baby, ♪ let's do the twist. ♪ come on, baby ♪ let's do the twist. >> they said it became the excitement and energy. dick clark chubby checkers to record a new version of the song. it is more than two dozen sounds of the 20th century being added to the national recording registry. they are forever being recorded for cultural importance. that's your five at five. >> great stuff. president obama just arrivin
the deficit long term. the democrat budget, of course, talks about a big tax hike over ten years of about $1 trillion. republicans say they're not going to do that. they want to roll back obama care. these are the two outside extreme positions. that's where we're at now. going forward can they come together and find some middle ground? >> weigh in on that, lauren. is there really a chance for reconciling these two extreme budgets? >> i think david kind of nailed it here. when it comes to the budgets, they're just a little bit too far, but this budget process isn't a waste of time. i think it's promising that they went through regular order. this is something that the senate hasn't done. they haven't passed a budget this a long time. i think what we'll see is this may open the door to pass some appropriations bilts for 2014 and this could put us on the road for a long-term deficit reduction deal. these are just opening gothss here. >> david, as i look at your article, it focuses on immigration reform and how it's making its way through the senate. where do things stand right now? >> alex, the
tumors in his mind like a flat tax which is regressive and ignorant wealth inexquality where the bottom 60% own 2.3%. i doubt jesus would tax them equally just as i doubt the gop would entertain a none-white politician with unserious ideas, but carson is enjoying the gop's version of affirmative action where black faces that can spit conservative game get raced to the front of the line because then people get to put a bumper sticker on their cars saying how can i be racist? i would have voted for cars be on which would fit nicely over the bumper sticker that said how can i be racist? i would have voted for cain. no matter how far from the political system they emerge from and no matter how unserious their ideas are because it's all make believe. none of them will ever get a nomination for the presidency just as the gop will never get black votes because the only thing they care about is winning and want the check or social needs of black people, but at the same time, imagine away, you guys. say you magically put me in the white house, but my brothers no magic is required to accomplish t
to tax people's savings accounts. some experts call cyprus the kay men islands of the mediterranean. lax oversight. reportedly the place to bank for the russian mob. it looks like the u.s. government will not shut down, at least not for now. but lawmakers may be setting themselves up for a new self-inflicted crisis down the road. it's good enough for honey boo boo. now another state could soon make it legal to eat road kill. what state you may be asking? that's coming up as we approach the bottom of the hour and the top of the news as fox reports live tonight. road kill. life brings obstacles. usaa brings retirement advice. love your passat! um. listen, gary. i bought the last one. nice try. says right here you can get one for $199 a month. you can't believe the lame-stream media, gary. they're all gone. maybe i'll get one.

in the bank will be taxed on them. under $130,000 it's a 6.75%, over $130,000 a 9% tax. and of course this is going to hit ordinary depositors, moms and pops, poor businesses, anybody who's got a bank account in cyprus is going to have to pay this tax. and it changes a fundamental principle of all bailouts so far. it is hitting the small people, the private investor, the private depositor. >> look at the other countries that have been bailed out. greece as a prime example where wages and retirement was slashed by more than these people are going to pay, which is a -- >> no, no, no. no, michael, it's not -- in cyprus case it's not an either or all, it's going to be a both. not only are they going to face this tax to help make up a shortfall, they're also going to have spending cuts and the government cutbacks, they're also going to have the recession that follows on as they try and make the economy back on track. this was done because some european countries believed to be the fins and germans and other northern european countries wanted to make sure they were not seen as bailing out r

,000 in the bank entirely to those under 100,000 and to keep the tax at 9.9% for those above 100,000 euros in their accounts. if it doesn't sound much different from the original plan, it's not. it basically exempts those with less than 20,000. on the back of that, we did see markets weak. elsewhere, there has been a weakening, but realively contained one. the ftse mib in italy is down 0.3%. the xetra dax is down by 0.5%. france is weaker. the ftse, as well, down about 0.25%. not too far off the levels we've seen this morning. german economic sentiment did come in roughly in line with expectations, so that helps to keep the bid in the euro, as well. here is the different between spain and italy. italy's ten-year selling off a bit. yield up to 4.66%. spain rallying. it did go to market with three nine-month yields this morning. still below 5%. i mentioned what was happening with the euro. let's take a look now as it continues to go through the different pieces of economic data we're getting this morning. it's still down about 0.11%. yesterday, it was actually stronger. so markets generally
.7 trillion budget almost completely along party lines. it raises taxes for the wealthiest americans and cuts spending by $875 billion. but it is so different from the drastic cuts recently passed by the house, that few if any expect the budgets to be reconciled and instead congress is expecting another fiscal battle in july when president obama will likely ask for increased borrowing power. president obama has returned to washington tonight after his trip to the middle east. the president took a break from diplomacy for the final leg of the trip touring the ancient city ever petra in jordan of the petra was built more than 2,000 years ago, carved out of stone between massive delivers. mr. obama called the scene royry spectacular." >> activists in san francisco gave training on how to protest against the keystone xl pipeline during president obama's upcoming visit. a few dozen gathered at federal building to take part in the training and if approved bit obama administration that pipeline could carry oil from alberta, to refineries on west coast. >> the struggle over california's mental heal
they do support raising tax, only on the wealthy americans but esensely, what's changed, they didn't pass a budget for four years, any budget threat they passed would have included a tax increase and felt vulnerable in the campaign. well, president obama got re-elected by promising a tax increase on high-income americans to reduce the deficit. so now, finally, senate democrats feel that they can go ahead and echo that position. that's change. >> an narc the president is expected to release the white house budget in april. what kind of compromises, if any, can we expect to see there? >> i think he is going to kind of come up and say the same things that he has been saying. we will look at the changes he will make to the entitlement program. the republicans saying they will not raise tax and what the democrats might do on entitlement reforms if they can find any kind of common ground that would be possible there. >> bill schneider, anna palmer, stick around. we would like to come back to you later in the hour, if that's okay with you. >> sure. >> thanks. >>> could bill clinton be talking ou

to collect sales tax from all out of state internet retailers will take place in the senate today. inevitably, it has a lot of support from the big box retailers in particular. let's bring in john harwood who is live from d.c. though this may just be a symbolic vote, weir to are told john. >> symbolic, but not meaningl s meaningless. it's a spring training of sorts to test opinion within congress on various causes. we saw a vote yesterday on the budget resolution, on the repeal of a medical device tax that was included to help finance the national health care law in the early part of the obama administration. the reason it's spring training is that budget resolutions themselves are not lost. so these are not binding votes, but they're a way to test sent ims for what they make later on and that's what we're seeing on the online sales tax situation. 48 states already have laws on the books requiring online retailers to collect state sales tax, but those laws are often ignored and you have a bill that has some bipartisan support that would require all states to collect those taxes. if split, th
amendments on the keystone xl pipeline. there were amendments on the medical tax device that pays for obama care. there are amendments on all sorts of things that don't have to do with the budget. so it was as political as it was about policy last night. >> yeah. but amie, you know, democrats passing this first budget in four years here, how significant is that? and what does it call for? >> well, it's significant just like andy said. it's sort of all politics at play. but you know, it's so vastly different from what the republicans in the house want. so i don't think -- and it's different than what the president wants. so i think that list just posturing. you know patty murray expressed optimism. she said that they might be able to bridge that divide. but i'm rather skeptical of that, alex. >> yeah, i'm curious, andy, why do you think? because you've got one being passed by the democratically controlled senate, and then you've got the house, or the gop control, do you think there's any chance these two extreme budgets in terms of their perspectives, will be mitigated and something will be
of the big ones, they can't be seen as the party of no. it stands for taxed enough already. we understand we want to draw a line in sand and not tax anything else. at some point you have to be for something and some point have to get people on your side to your mission and vision and move legislation. you can't just be sitting up there pounding your fist, saying no and pointing to constitution. while i love and respect the constitution, you have to use the that to bring people on to your side, not turn people off. that's an issue. as far as rand paul's concerned, look, libertarian as though he may be, he's got some issues and stances that could bring some people on to the conservative libertarianism. i don't know what that is, either, by the way, goldie. he could bring people to that side. goldie also pointed out there are big issues he has about civil rights and things like that that are nonstarters that no one brought up in the last few weeks since his filibuster. >> so, angela, republicans have talked a lot about how they can do better among women voters. senator ted cruz recently did a l

slash $4.6 trillion over ten years without raising taxes. now senator patty murray will work with congressman paul ryan to try and bridge the gap between the two radically different proposals. mark, i think it would have been a public service to the american public to actually point out some of the amendments that they raised in this marathon session they had over in the senate over the weekend. >> from the sublime to the ridiculous. >> oh, my god. >> but they have a senate budget now and a house budget and i think most people think we are going to plod through this year and not have a big deal unless the president somehow comes back and reengages but a pretty big difference starting with the senate bill has lots of new revenue in it. >> give me an idea. give me an idea of the previews of coming traattractions. >> you have patty murray with her budget and paul ryan with his budget on the other side of the table. >> let's say i think they are far apart which i'm dubious as to where these negotiations will go and it comes back to what we were talking about earlier. where is the
's the thing. they were ready to tax everyone. i don't care if you would ten euro zone in the bank or a million euros in the bank, they were going to hit you with this tax. obviously that scares the heck out of people. >>alisyn: luckily it was shot down, that plan, because it was so controversial. how did europe react to all of this? >> it's interesting because i don't think the europeans were ready for this to happen. they hatched the plan over last weekend, the i.m.f., e.c.b. and the european union and i think they thought they had the votes. this puts them in a precarious position. the finance minister is in russia. russia gave them a bailout last year, low-interest bailout, almost three billion euros. a lot of this money belongs to russian businesses. but a lot of it legitimate businesses too. the bottom line is i don't know if that was supposed to make it politically correct to go in and steal money from everyone, including regular citizens. >>brian: the russians look like the compassionate ones. it's not fair to the people of cyprus to do this. they say that private gas company offered to

that the perception is that the republican party today fights for the wealthy with tax breaks for the wealthy, for corporations, loopholes, and doesn't really understand the average hard-working american anymore and that's what we've got to get back to. >> i was struck by that piece of it because it seems it's not a hypothetical or divorced from the facts assessment. during the primary campaign where your count rick santorum did well against mitt romney, at one point where they got the most traction against mitt romney was talking about those economic angles about the way mitt romney has behaved in corporate america, the vulture capitalism. it wasn't endorsed uniformly by all of mr. romney's competitors in the primary but it did seem to work. and then there was just a vociferous backlash among the republican establishment that you wouldn't talk that way about success. how do you think that plays out? >> it looked like we were attacking capitalism, and i don't think that was the intent. but i do think this, all over this this country, people will wake at 3:00 in the morning, tossing and turnin
so, the government is not going to take 10% of my taxed money out of my savings account. i'm going to go to the bank and withdraw my money. the cypriotic equivalent of uncle sam, can't do that to me so they shut down the banks. so what happened today? >> the vote on whether or not the cypriot government is going to be able to reach into a private bank and take some of that money, the vote is in absolute chaos, megyn. about an hour ago, the ruling party said it would abstain from taking part in this vote. then it issued a call to delay the vote for one day. then the finance minister of cyprus resigned, but his resignation has not yet been accepted. in other words, this is a chaotic situation and the bailout of the whole country at this moment is in limbo, but to get back to your main point, megyn, you're absolutely right. we've reached an international financial principle here. in the past, if you lent money to a bank or a country that was going sour, you, the lender, lost money. this time around, it's a new principle. if you have money in a bank account in that country, you will lo

responsible is of course, you had the bush tax cuts. then right after, you had the attacks on september 11th and you had the war on afghanistan, which i supported and almost all of the members of congress did, because those were the people that attacked us. but then, you had the war in iraq and both afghanistan and iraq were fought as quote emergencies, which means they weren't included in the annual deficits. so, now, when they're talking about a budget that cuts student loan programs for gi members, people coming back from iraq and afghanistan now they're not getting their student loans. because this was all fought off budget. i think that's political malpractice on the part of the republican party. they should have budgeted for this. >> well, from a congressional physician of the soul like diana degette, thank you so much. now to dr. james peterson, msnbc analyst and director of africana st studies. professor, millions oppose the war, but as you know, and i'm sure you remember, their voices were significantly marginalized. give us a sense of how that happened. >> there's a lot of context
